After President Obama held his first Twitter town hall this week and took a question from Speaker of the House John Boehner among many others, The Washington Post's Ezra Klein who was filling in for Martin Bashir decided that turnaround was fair play for John Boehner.

Klein has started a new hashtag on Twitter where you can ask questions you'd like to see John Boehner answer and he promised to read some of them on the air this Friday. The new hashtag is #ASKBOEHNER for anyone on Twitter that would like to submit a question. My question would be "John Boehner, where are the jobs?"

Can you help us out?
